A nice park located southeast of downtown Denver. The history of the park is intriguing with it being a former cemetery and draws in many paranormal fanatics. Is usually bit too crowded but still a nice park for a nice walk, family event, or ghost hunting!

This is my favorite park in Denver. It was a cemetery way back when, and the layout reflects that. Beautiful views to the west, and plenty of both trees and open space. It gets a bit crowded on weekends and nice days, with people playing frisbee, soccer, volleyball, etc., or just hanging out. But there's always room, and it doesn't... More

I live about 6 blocks from Cheesman Park so I am there just about every weekend in the summer. It's a great place to relax, throw a frisbee or a football, or just have a nice healthy run.

Cheesman Park is a well used neighborhood park. To be very blunt if you are homophobic this is not the place for you. However, you will see kids, family's, picnickers, volleyball games and lots of dog walking. The road inside the park is generally packed with bicyclers and skate boarders. The East side of the park is predominately where the... More

This park started out as a cemetery. But that was a long time ago and they have moved all the corpses -- or at least they say. Nice park in a great neighborhood.

Cheesman Park is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Nice area with plenty of green space. We were there on a beautiful snowy day and enjoyed seeing everyone walking around the park. We were able to find parking easily.

We were fortunate enough to have found a place so close to this park, as it was a great park to take a stroll and enjoy the open space. Dotted with blue firs and other conifers, the park offers plenty of grass to host a picnic or outdoor games :)

Cheesman park is a great place to hang out in the Summer....just be careful going there after right the snow melts. The ground will be soggy and the geese like to do their business all over the place. Also watch out for ghosts!

Worth a visit for a great place to walk, run, picnic, fly a kite, fly a drone, dance, yoga, nap, sleep, play ball, frisbee, volleyball, baseball, softball, soccer, football, exercise and much more. Nice view of the mountains too. Not the biggest park there is, but a leisurely walk around is about 25-30 minutes worth depending on your pace.

A wonderful place to be for a picnic or for volleyball in the daytime. It's on the smaller side, so it's perfect for a walk, but not so great if you're looking to get in a nice run. Be wary of being in this park after dark; lots of sketchy activity.
